That's why I said "usually" ( ^ u ^ ) Octopath was a bit of an eye strain in portable, I agree. I seem to remember complaints about fire emblem too, but I didn't play that one. Sadly, the tiny font syndrome is spreading to all formats.Maybe on a TV, but I tried playing Octopath Traveller in portable mode when I got my Switch in September. I gave up after about ten minutes. I played a lot of Vita and DS games, and I don't remember any of them being that bad.
I really need to try it on my TV as I expect it will be a lot better.
But on average the games I play on switch don't make me squint as much.
